Post Meet Coaches Note:
Coaches - Here are the "combined results" for the boys and girls races - hope it helps with comparisons. Mike and I would like to thank you for attending our meet this year, and helping to make it what we hope was a fun day for your kids and your coaches and parents. While it was still pretty warm, it sure felt good after the weekend weather we experienced.

Despite running at the hottest point of the day, the fastest boys and girls times were turned in by the Juniors! Congrats to Preston Norris of Las Lomas (10:53) and Emma Tavella of San Ramon Valley (12:45) for their strong efforts yesterday. Team wise, Dougherty Valley turned in the strongest performance on the boys side, while SRV had a dominating run on the girls side.

The park was really clean last night - thank you for helping to police your areas. We hope the extra bathrooms helped. While we don't have final figures yet, it appears that sales from our snack table and t-shirts were robust. Thank you for supporting our efforts to raise funds for the Hurricane Harvey Relief.

We are always interested in improving the experience at our meet, so please let us know any areas of concern or improvement that you might have for us. Best of luck to you all this season, we hope you'll come back again next year - first Tuesday after Labor Day!

Post Season Wrap Up

Posted by Mike Davis at Nov 30, 2016 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
STATE MEET!   Strong performances close out the XC season at Woodward Park in Fresno.  Girls once again finish 5th, this time in the tough D2 race.  Last year they were 5th in D1.   The Boys team finishes 11th today, just missing last season's 10th place effort.    Senior Meredith Corda medals with a stellar 7th place finish - running half of the race with just one shoe!  She moves to #2 all time at State for MVXC.  Senior Tristan Miller leads the boys team, equaling the all-time Monte Vista mark at Woodward while finishing 15th.   Results here.  Full story pending. 

North Coast Section Championship's
  Both MV Teams again make State!  Record third straight season that both squads qualify to the ultimate cross country race! Boys take a strong second to State ranked Dublin, turning back EBAL foes Granada and De La Salle in the effort!  Girls go all in with a epic performance, just missing the top spot by one point, finishing second on the day and punching their ticket again as a whole team.  That's four straight years to state, and oh so close to a Section record "4 peat"!

Subject: Will history be made? And will you be there to watch? (Plus lost and found info and more)

This Saturday morning both our Mustang girls varsity *AND* our boys varsity will attempt to do something that has never been done before and they need your support.
Dear Cross Country Team Members, Parents, and Fans,
Stampede Into History?
The girls will be attempting to "4-peat" as NCS cross country champions. Not only has no Monte Vista team ever done that, no team from any other school has ever done it in divisions 1-4 either since the inception of the sport for girls in 1974. The competition will be FIERCE this year. Our girls will be facing local titans, Granada and San Ramon Valley, among other top teams. All season long, these girls teams have been trading victories and defeats and keeping close tabs on each other. The Matadors got the upper hand at the league meet, but our Mustangs are ready to show their real mettle this Saturday morning at 11:10 and aim to make history in the rematch. BUT THEY NEED YOUR HELP! Yes, they do. It really does help to have Mustang fans to cheer our runners on as they face some of the toughest competition in the state. The drive to Hayward is short and the thrill of the racing will be worth your time.
Be the "8th Man" for our Men
Basketball has its 6th Man. Football has its 12th Man. Our Mustang boys need an "8th Man" and that is YOU! Please come out and support your varsity squad. After the girls race, stick around and root for our guys. They are trying to make history, too. They are going for the school's FIRST EVER back-to-back NCS title in cross country. They are hungry to leave a lasting legacy and earn a bid to represent the NCS at the state cross country meet.
  • Girls Division 2 Race at 11:10
  • Guys Division 2 Race at 12:50
  • Hayward High School, 1633 East Ave, Hayward, CA 94541

Are you SURE some of this stuff isn't yours? See photo attached. Like-new jackets, a uniform top, reading glasses, and more... Also found: a Timex running watch (not pictured). Please contact me if any of these items is yours.

Go Mustangs!
